Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-491) Export and Re-Import ldif: "invalid password syntax"
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 19:24:46 GMT


Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-491:

Hi Andrea,

Studio isn't doing any password syntax checks. Some directory servers implement password policies,
but this should be configurable in your directory server configuration. Which directory server
are you using, if you could tell us? So maybe you could disable such a check for the initial
load. However if your old server doesn't contain clear-text passwords but hashed passwords
(like the {crypt} password in your example) then IMHO your new directory server can't check
the password.

Kind Regards,
